The Leicester Square Theatres production of DICK! , this years offering this season is to put it mildly , an offensive, overtly smutty, crude , vulgar, lacking in any sense of decency and yes that is why the the theatre was full.
To quote Cowell.’ We did not like it , we loved it’
A very strong cast that were relishing every moment were out to make sure that via a very awesome alliterated script and OTT direction from Stuart Saint. the crowd were going ton get what they came for. Now in the main room, the increase in production values and scope of the show were blatant to see without loosing the feel of intimacy when the pantomime was staged in the Lounge. This is a high calibre show which cannot fail to play to good houses.
At the heart of this piece is also a point to be made, The gentrification of Soho that bars and clubs are closing and an alarming rate . Fast paced and when the inevitable audience participation is required including removing two unsuspecting ladies from the front row to join in the fun, the extent of the mayhem does not diminish . The demand to participate in the ‘sing-a-long’ is welcomed with an eagerness that is rather splendid . The musical numbers are perfectly executed and even when descending into a controlled chaos the cast never take their eyes of the ball, Hugely entertaining and one of the best produced theatrical treats around this season, 4 stars
